. >> okay, sixuan, thanks for that. >>> it says merging giants. they may not be. defense giants bae and eads have until the end of the day to decide whether they can get together or scrap plans. they'll be locked in talks to the last minute with hints that germany is ready to block a deal, and a spokesman has already confirmed there will be no announcement. william hague spoke about it. >> we've got a good record in recent years in having defense projects, such as the typhoon aircraft with other european countries. but the relationship with the united states, our strategic relationship and technological relationship with the united states is indispensable to us. so, of course, it is necessary for us to be able to continue in both those directions simultaneously. and that's a very important consideration. any such merger of this kind. >> and joining us for more is the director at chatham hasram. they came out against the deal. so that was from a shareholder's point of view. what about from a uk defense point of view? are there political risks in allowing this to go ahead? >> the biggest polit
's called attack from a defensive position. the president has been attacked. i think it's time to return the favor to romney. your thoughts this week. >> it's what he had to do in the debate, didn't do, and it's what he has to do every day between now and the next debate. he has to draw the contrast on medicare and straighten out this myth that the president cut $716 million from medicare benefits. he didn't. they're cut from medicare providers like insurance companies that are overcharging. he has to attack on the issue of taxes. there aren't enough tax loopholes or tax deductions to pay for romney's tax cut unless you cut into home interest mortgage deductions, unless you get rid of state and local taxes. that will hit the middle class hard. you have to be honest about this. the debate hurt obama and helped romney, and romney's gotten a bump in the polls, although it seems to be flattening out. you look at the new poll in ohio, the president is at 51%, romney is at 47%. i think the president, the fundamental structure of the race hasn't been changed, but if he doesn't go on the attack,
result. i must note, though, that while the republican budget increases the budget of the defense defendant, it slashes the budget that would have protected these diplomats. >> i might note that the funding that is currently enjoyed by the state department was voted bipartisan, one more democrat voting for the appropriations than republicans. >>neil: they are putting it on all republicans and it ain't flying well with senator graham. you have heard that. what do you think of that? >>guest: as the ranking republican on the foreign operations subcommittee that funds the state department and that is a bunch of garbage. this is about -- you talk about the fiscal cliff being predictable, what is predictable with a lack of security in libya and militias are not dealt with, consulates and embassies will be attacked. we need to get to the real security situation? did people make a request? were they denied? why did susan rice come on national tv and say this was result of the video in did she say that based on intelligence for five days? she said it five days after the attack. she either
in interviews and not sure she should be getting that defensive. that's for other people to do. she should be above the fray. >> i would love to interrue her, but with all due respect, she might say i know what i'm doing because after the alleged rebellion with tag and politico.com reported on her husband has at least seen some improvement in the numbers so while, you know, we read the articles, we are journalists and pundits or whatever the case may be, she perhaps believes she knows better for her husband and why she's chosen to be the attack dog and i don't like using that word in reference to any woman but she is going out attacking. >> clearly she feels that way. i learned the other day that she was the first wife of a presidential candidate to ever appear on "meet the press" which i was fascinated with. i don't know how that came about. if she insisted on it or she did or the campaign did. but i think that's really interesting that they feel that she's that effective whereas with michele obama, you know, she is doing stuff mostly off the radar. she's exciting the base. she's going ou
focused right now on ideas, on the defense of the ideas, bold ideas, as romney articulated last week. he changed the whole narrative. the obama campaign's effort to undermine it by these silly attacks, republicans can't stand young people, they want to kick them off their parents' health care, they want to go after women, the war on women. and now the new option, they're going after big bird, oh, my gosh. it's silly. >> when paul ryan says that the fullest extent of his experience in foreign policy is that he's voted to send people to war, when you've got joe biden whose son not only served for a year but also as a senator from delaware, he's been out there at dover sending troops off, welcoming home those caskets and not to mention he has a foreign policy expert. >> is he really a foreign policy expert? every single position that joe biden has taken on foreign policy issues for his career has been wrong. he has opposed every positive step we've taken in foreign policy. so bring him on when it comes to foreign policy. i hope that he actually does. >> the one thing you haven't mentioned o
of defense and the national security council. prior to becoming chairman, he served briefly as the army's 37th chief of staff. general dempsey is a bit of an unexpected appointment. he had just been sworn in as the army chief of staff a couple of months prior, but when the nomination process for another candidate stalled, general dempsey was called to serve a grateful nation, and he has done so with distinction. since taking the chairman's job a year ago, the 37-year army veteran has made headlines by dealing with the infamous quran-burning pastor by calling him up and asking him to withdraw his support for the anti-muslim video that sparked protests across the middle east. he expressed disappointment over the navy seal who published an unauthorized account of the killing of osama bin laden. he said an israeli attack on iran would clearly delay but probably not destroy iran's nuclear program. he has stressed the need to retool the military for a postwar world with smaller pentagon budgets, and most recently he has spoken about the need to turn up the volume on ways to help war veterans reint
-- and the president can remain polite. i just hope we see a more aggressive defense and a better frame, a better narrative about who he is, what he's done and where we're going as a country. >> let's start with the negative. let's play defense here. what about going after this 47%, when romney was being taped, not on national television, but when he thought he wasn't on national television, when he basically dismissed half the country for being slackers, moochers, whatever, loafers. when he did that, that wasn't something he was saying by accident. that is something, serious, he can still go after that once romney's taken it back? >> yes, absolutely. and he needs to go after it. one of the things he need to do, dee dee points out, there are three chapters. look what i inherited and look at the situation that confronted me the moment i walked in the office. the second chapter is, look what we did. every single thing we did, maybe it didn't work as fast or as well as we would have liked but it's working now. every single thing we did, the republicans and mitt romney tried to keep us from doing. an
%, increase spending on the defense budget by $2 trillion, increase medicare above ryan's idea above $716 billion. you can't take in less and spend more and balance it. that's why mitt romney, buy a $2 calculator and you'll see your plan doesn't work. >> but you're forgetting, you know, we never hear where conservatives want to spend. he wants to spend on defense. he gave a speech to the virginia military institute where he talked about if i'm president i'll buy 11 ships and including three submarines. that's a lot of money. >> the admirals don't even want the ships. just the military industrial complex wants to make the ships. >> do you want to take this one? >> you got the line. we're going to rebuild spending on the homeland. >> my bad, yeah. >> in all seriousness. >> because al qaeda's got the submarines threatening. >> governor, you're an elected official. you know when you run on a plan, you can't get -- there's a danger in getting so specific up front that you give away the house before you've even been elected into office. so mitt romney has laid down the principles by which he's
it as a defense business that pays a nice dividend. spanish slightly high. also had a tea bill auction out of italy today. for the first time in a while, yields were slightly high on the three-month. the 12-month yields, 1.94 from previously just under 1.7 in september. slightly higher auction yields for italy in the tea bill area. that's where we stand. some pretty low volume -- kind of waiting day, i'll put it like that. we'll wait to see what you guys get up to. but for now, back to you. >> okay, 00-ross, thank you. i read this a couple times. the obama campaign and supporters, including big wigs like david axelrod and robert gibbs along with several cable tv anchors. >> i think you know who -- ali has been tweeting. >> i doubt if that's andrew. >> would like you to believe that the bls -- that the data is handled like gold in fort knox, gun carrying guards watching their every move. highly trained white gloved super agents counting and recounting each number. when in fact, there are 60,000 households that these census workers call on the phone, try to get a hold of them over a one-week
is going to widen. >> obama's been on defense the last week. >> woo vepolling data now... that shows that romney is ahead, wherever he is ahead. i think he has been ahead for months or weeks. i don't think it happened overnight. but they are all saying romney is surging. >> he was on the stage with the president of the united states. he looked like he was in command. he was in charge of the entire discussion. i think that's the reason the polls are tightening right now. >> i told you 3 months ago, 2 months ago and 1 month ago, if the election were held on that day, it would be a landslide romney. >> the facts are the facts. we just saw them come to light in the last debate. with no outside b.s., no bias, media, no interruptions and negative political ads every five seconds. and most importantly, no damn teleprompters. >> the debate is not just shifting the polls. the debate is creating momentum. >> this business of just going out and calling a candidate for the president of the united states, a liar, just say liar, liar, this is a new low. this is a really -- really a new low. >> thi
, as president, would you have signed the national defense act as written? >> yes, i would have. >> dana, julian, this guy -- his memory is so good, he remembers things that didn't happen. >> right. >> well, look, this is actually a relatively controversial issue about whether merndz can be detained during a period of war indefinitely -- >> a position he agreed with previously and said he would sign the legislation. >> not only that, this is a position that's been debated intensely after 9/11. it's possible not to understand this issue or to have a position on it at this point. and it goes to the point, again, this is a guy who will, you know, say and do anything in order to get elected and really has no core. but again, i think that's a useful narrative. but i want to go back to the earlier point, which is there is so much meat on the table for the democrats right now f you go after the tax plan, the health plan, the fact that mitt is still hiding information on his taxes, i think what is missing here is not so much increasing the narrative on all of his -- this game of twister, where he can ta
it was a complex assault. the compound's first line of defense easily breached. according to one of the libyan guards who was stationed at the gate, armed with only a radio, the assault happened simultaneously from three different directions. he says that he initially heard chanting growing increasingly louder and then suddenly the gunfire, the rocket-propelled grenades and other heavy machine gunfire all began attacking the compound. this is where ambassador chris stevens slept. part of a small suite also meant to be a makeshift safe room. here on the floor between the bed and the chair is where cnn found the ambassador's journal. it is also the same room where the ambassador was located hours after the attack first began. separated by smoke from his security detail. the u.s. initially said the assault was the result of a demonstration turned violent. >> putting together the best information that we have available to us today. our current assessment is that what happened in benghazi was, in fact, initially a spontaneous reaction to what had just transpired hours before in cairo, almost a copy
as vigorously by his friends is by governor romney. now we learn the defense secretary leon panetta has sent our troops to georgia. to make a clear statement of support to our jordanian allies and an unmistakable signal to turkey and iran to take some care and some caution. my guest tonight is no stranger to foreign policy. the white house is running from the political fallout and a crumbling middle east. joining us now is k.t. mcfarland. it is great to have you with us. let's start with the testimony before the house oversight committee,. >> what happens in an election year is that the policy misfires. the administration from the white house, wants to get as far away from the president as he can. so he has no idea who did what, when did they do it, who said what. eventually the dust settled and then what happens is the administration has to blame everybody. lou: it's inconceivable that the president of the united states three weeks into this tragedy is talking about an internet video and not talking about terrorism, the terrorists who killed an american ambassador and at the same time, the pare
11th attack. eyewitnesss told us it was a complex assault. the compound's first line of defense easily breached. according to one of the libyan guards who was stationed at the gate armed with only a radio, the assault happened simultaneously from three different directions. he says that he initially heard chanting growing increasingly louder and then suddenly the gunfire, the rocket-propelled grenades and heavy machine gunfire all began attacking the compound. this is where ambassador chris stephens slept, part of a small suite also meant to be a makeshift safe room. here on the floor between the bed and the chair is where cnn found the ambassador's journal. it is also the same room where the ambassador was located hours after the attack first began. separated by smoke from his security detail. the u.s. initially said the assault was the result of a demonstration that turned violent. >> putting together the best information that we have available to us today, our current assessment is that what happened in benghazi was, in fact, initially a spontaneous reaction to what had just
defense. and i think we'll see in this next election, this debate coming up tomorrow morning, i think you'll see a paul ryan who is able to handle those kinds of issues and needs to be able to enunciate. >> i get the sense that you they we haven't seen enough rye ran? >> former speaker dennis hastert. >>> it's earnings season on wall street, investors are feeling a little bit jumpy. market rundown is next. plus blue democrats, will biden be able to turn the page for the democratic campaign. >>> but first your trivia question, how many vice presidents are alumni of center college in kentucky. the answer a and more is coming up on the daily rundown. ♪ i'd like to thank eating right, whole grain, multigrain cheerios! mom, are those my jeans?

in their defense during that trial to really focus on the fact that they believe that this was political, wasn't motivated by religious hatred, as the charges stated, and that it was a legal political protest. in that sense it's really now only in the appeal that that point has been hammered home. >> it seems to be some real similarities between what president vladimir putin says about this case and the subsequent court rulings. a lawyer for one of the women pointing out in the guardian newspaper that the women were given a lighter sentence after president putin said they shouldn't be judged too harshly, and then just a few days ago mr. putin said the band got what they asked for. then today the court refused to let two of them go. is this a coincidence, or is there a real correlation here? >> hmm, coincidence. these are the events that took place. certainly the russian judicial system isn't known for being the most transparent, the most independent in the world, and there are people in this country that go much further than that. they say that it is heavily corrupt. quite often very politiciz
and hundreds of drug tests. and that was always his defense. i did the tests, they knock on my door in the middle of the night, they come in, i do the test, i always pass. one of his former teammates said, well, i was cheating and i passed hundreds of tests as well. they have so much evidence against him. here is the list. they say they have eyewitness, documentary, firsthand, scientific, direct and circumstantial evidence and testimony from 11 former teammates. they have got 15 riders on record, 26 people in total have given sworn testimony. it doesn't look at all good for lance, does it? >> it doesn't at all, especially when he's quoted from this usada statement. lance armstrong was given the same opportunity to come forward and be part of the solution. he rejected it. what have we heard. what has cnn heard from lance armstrong or his attorney? >> he had the opportunity earlier this year to fight the charge. he said no. he basically thinks it is a witch-hunt, a kangaroo court. he thinks he can't win anyway. he thinks the whole system is set up to get him and to target him. so he d
and a lot of sports fans mourning the loss of football great alex karras. the former defensive lineman for the detroit lions who later found success in his acting career died today. karras was noted for his role in the 1974 comedy classic blazing saddles and the abc sitcom webster. he was also a darned good commentator on monday night football as well. alex karras, 77 years old. >>> coming up a sack of gold nets more than just a bull. we'll show you how this young deer was set free up. >> next a surveillance video shows you just how lucky a young hit and run victim is to be alive. >> don't forget we're always on at www.wusa9.com. stay with us. we'll be right back. >>> caught on tape, a pedestrian literally mowed down by a hit and run driver. somehow he lives to tell the tale. this is surveillance video from over the weekend in charlotte, north carolina. that's shawn lewis running across the street. check this out. >> oh, no. >> yeah. he flipped 10 feet in the air. that suv driver stopped, gets out, but seconds later he jumps back in and drives away. a little dazed, amazingly get up and
think joe biden is similarly situated. he can make a strong authoritative defense of the president's record and also take on frankly some of the things that governor romney said last week that just aren't true like his tax policies don't benefit the rich. so i think he's in a good position to make the argument and forcefully. >> now, phil, there are those moments where you've come off a debate or a speech or television broadcast and you think, oh, why didn't i say that, would have, could have, should have. back to new hampshire when you were coaching tim pawlenty and the first new hampshire debate where he previewed he was going to be tough against mitt romney and talk about obamaeny care -- >> what are you doing to me here? >> could you relate a little bit to the fact that we all expected the president to be tough and aggressive and he wasn't? and did that happen back then in your camp? >> let me just say that i think that the debates are really fundamentally important. they were very important in our primary in terms of the demoments in the key trajectories who we chose as a nomi
. the secretary of defense has called those kinds of cuts devastating to our national security. i will not cut our military. i'll restore that funding and keep our military second to none in the world. >> mitt romney on the stump there in ohio opening up there with governor chris christie from new jersey talking about repealing obama care and talking about the deficits that the country has achieved under president obama. we shall see how he goes for the rest of the day there, ohio so important to the romney campaign. no republican -- no republican has ever taken the white house without taking ohio. that's going to wrap things up for me. thanks for your time.

spent those two weeks doing what he intended to do rather than playing defense. i do know that focus groups, both romney campaign ran and the obama campaign ran showed these remarks really alienated independent voters and even weak republicans. which indicates to me that this comes up again in the debate and advertising, it will remind people. they forgot about it or responding to the debate. host: let's go to phone calls. barb, democratic caller you're on the air. caller: i would like to say that romney expressed his real feeling about the 47%. it cannot be ignored. also understand that he signed grover norquist pledge. if he did that, he cannot represent 100% of the population because if you say that you're going to ignore the situation that the country is in, you cannot say that you unequivocally ignore taxes and to get income to support the country. with that, he could not represent me and the middle class and or poor people. host: we'll leave it there. john in north carolina, tweets in this though. the 53% are not in the least offended by the comment which was by and large t
